Sarah Davies Therapies
Hi I'm Sarah, devoted Mum of two, with a passion for natural alternatives.
My mission is to provide a sanctuary where people can switch-off, relax and simply be.
My main focus right now is easing headaches and neck tension for desk workers and working with pregnant clients in my own cozy clinic on Treforest Industrial Estate, Pontypridd.
My aim to provide a unique blend of techniques that offers a relaxing deep tissue massage that has all the benefits of a sports massage, but without the pain. Deep Tissue is a slow style of massage, that allows the muscles to melt and relax, rather than forcing them, which can be painful. This style is deeply relaxing and leaves you feeling soft, supple and calm. So it's perfect for those who suffer from pain, anxiety or during pregnancy.
At 17 I was diagnosed with anxiety.
With sleeping tablets and anti-depressants being the only option from my GP, I starting looking into alternative, more natural ways to deal with anxiety and social phobia. I started using Aromatherapy oils to help me keep calm and grounded.
In 2002 my life changed!
After gaining courage I received counselling. I was so impressed with how much it helped me, I wanted to learn the skills to help others in the same way. So I spent 3 years studying counselling in Coleg Morgannwg.
2005 I took a year out
After the counselling courses I wanted to take a year out before I went to uni to study Psychology. Looking to build on my hobby I thought I'd join an Aromatherapy course just for fun. I ended up enrolling on the Professional Diploma for Holistic Therapy.
I fell in Love
I Loved the Holistic Course so much I went on to Glamorgan University to study Complimentary Therapies. While at the Uni I was the first and only holistic student to have a paid position as a therapist at The Academy Spa.
In 2010 I set up on my own and joined the ACT Clinic in Cardiff, then moved across to Therapease until I had my daughter in 2013.
The Whitchurch Clinic
In April 2014 I joined The Whitchurch Clinic. Working alongside Chiropractor Andrea Howell, I was inspired to learn Sports & Rehabilitation Massage. Here I worked alongside the Chiropractors to offer Deep Tissue massage for Rehabilitation & injuries.
MY OWN SPACE!
On August 1st 2017 I took the plunge and finally set up my own clinic on Treforest Industrial Estate.
All the therapies I provide are deeply relaxing and nurturing, and I’ve developed a unique style of deep tissue massage that is deep enough to focus on problems areas yet relaxing enough for you to unwind and de-stress, leaving you feeling totally at peace.
It’s only when you stop, pause and breathe, the mind quietens down, and the body starts to heal.
Lockdown Lessons with JING
During the Lockdown I had a unique opportunity to train as an Advanced Clinical Massage Therapist with JING. This means I can treat chronic pain and sports injuries using the JING Massage Fusion protocol. It is the perfect platform to combine all my therapies into one great treatment. So, now clients don't have to worry about which treatment to book, because all therapies are blended into one, tailored treatment.
